According to PEOPLE magazine, Jessica Simpson and Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo broke up Thursday, which just happened to be the day before the Country artist’s 29th birthday.

"She loves Tony," a source told PEOPLE. "But it's been difficult lately. He's busy with his career and she's getting ready to shoot her show (The Price of Beauty). They decided to part ways."

Simpson had planned a Barbie and Ken themed birthday party with Romo, but it was apparently canceled because of the breakup. But, the newly single artist seems to be thinking positive.

"Barbie party didn't happen," Simpson wrote on her Twitter page. "But I turned 29 and feel like i am on top of the world yelling I LOVE GETTING OLDER!"
